UPDATE: The Copenhagen police have arrested a 28-year-old man for stabbing a 39-year-old woman to death last night in Amager.

After a few hours of searching, the police found the man, their main suspect from the start of their investigation, hiding in an apartment of a complete stranger.

"He got inside a building by ringing a bell and saying he fell off his bicycle. He then managed to get into the apartment of a young man, where we found and arrested him," a detective, Jens Møller, told media.

ORIGINAL STORY: A 39-year-old woman was stabbed to death on Tuesday night in Amager. 

The police, who have not arrested anyone yet, have revealed they suspect one of the woman's male acquaintances.

"The woman was stabbed several times with a knife. It happened outside on Hjulmagerstien," reported Henrik Vedel, the officer in charge of the investigation.

It has not been disclosed whether a murder weapon has been found, however.

Searching for suspect
The police are searching in different places for the suspect with dog patrols.

"Obviously, we would like to urge him to contact the police himself," said one of the detectives on the case, Jens Møller, according to DR.

The police were informed of the murder shortly after 4am, and a forensics team have been at the crime scene since 6am.
